Now is the Perfect Time to Invest in a Used Spray Foam Rig

By Kevin Malone

Around this time of year, two things happen that make investing in a used spray foam trailer or used spray foam rig worth consideration.

Contractors are preparing budgets and forecasts for the coming year. In many cases, this means they plan to invest in new equipment to take on bigger or more projects. They often sell or trade in equipment as part of buying new. Manufacturers are also likely to offer new models, which means some contractors will upgrade their equipment to get the latest technology. This places more used equipment on the market, which leads to more options and better pricing.

Either way, this provides an opportunity to find quality used spray foam rigs and spray foam trailers at an affordable price.

Used Spray Foam Rigs for Sale

When considering used spray foam rigs, you need to ensure that you are getting high-quality rigs that still provide the performance you need. You will first need to study the specs and ensure the equipment has the power and output your jobs demand.

You will also want to evaluate the following:

Proportioners and Hoses

Dried and cured spray foam that coats the inside of hose and proportioner systems can degrade performance and be challenging to clean. Often, buildup requires replacement and refurbishment of equipment. This can be time-consuming and expensive, so you will want to ensure you have the expertise and access to the right materials or work with a distributor such as Intech Equipment and Supply. Distributors will also make sure the equipment meets quality standards.

Spray Guns

Spray foam guns can also be damaged due to excessive residue. You want to check that there are no loose parts and that the gun connects securely to the hose and proportioner to avoid leaks, reductions in pressure/output, or overspray.


Heaters keep spray foam at the proper temperature during mixing and material delivery. You want to ensure the heaters are in good shape and can deliver consistent temperatures.

Maintenance and Repair

Properly serviced and maintained spray foam rigs will have a much longer lifespan. With the proper care, used equipment can last for a long time. Ask to see service records or a list of repairs.

The best advice is to work with a well-known spray foam equipment supplier, such as Intech Equipment and Supply, that can guide you to the right equipment for your business. When you get a refurbished unit from a reputable distributor, you can save money and have peace of mind, knowing that the used spray foam rig will operate properly.

Used Spray Foam Trailers for Sale

Whether you buy used or new spray foam equipment, you may want to consider used spray foam trailers. Intech Equipment and Supply has both new and used spray foam trailers available, although inventory can vary based on what is available.

When evaluating used spray foam trailers, you will want to pay attention to the equipment that is on board. Regardless of any cost savings, the wrong equipment will cost you in the long run if it does not have the output or versatility you need for your business.

You will want to ensure there is enough space for any additional equipment, accessories, or materials you need, and that the configuration will fit your workflow. You will also want to make sure the spray foam trailer is in good shape, is adequately insulated, and will support the weight evenly for a smooth ride.

Private Sales vs. Distributors

You may find used trailers and spray foam equipment on auction sites, but private sales can be risky. You do not know the actual condition of the equipment and may have little recourse if things are not as advertised. When you work with a reputable dealer with decades of experience, such as Intech Equipment and Supply, the company will stand behind what it sells sell and make sure you get what you pay for.

Distributors can also provide guaranteed shipping and delivery so you can avoid traveling for “pick-up only” used equipment sales.
